It brings our system into sharp focus and shows us how we can make it stronger and safer for everyone.

As usual, it needs publicity so people can see what it does, and it needs legislators who can get it implemented.

for completely BS reasons. They don't want the government to know who has guns.

Gun Violence by State (searched & cannot find a per capita rate since 2020)

Based on the number of gun deaths per capita in 2019 alone, states with the most gun violence are:

Alaska - 24.4
Mississippi - 24.2
Wyoming - 22.3
New Mexico 22.3
Alabama - 22.2
Louisiana - 22.1
Missouri - 20.6
South Carolina - 19.9
Arkansas - 19.3
Montana - 19.3

These states tend to have high gun ownership rates. Montana has the highest with 66.3%, followed by Wyoming with 66.2%, and Alaska with 64.5%.

Lowering gun deaths won't lower the gun industry.
